People who use screen readers - is there a website or app that can check whether a site is optimized for screen readers?
@starbreaker I used this and it was very helpful, thank you!
@PhilthePill You're welcome. I use it at my day job and for my personal stuff.
@PhilthePill There's a browser plugin called "Axe Core" that'll help check for accessibility violations, including ones that would affect screen readers! The best way to really proof it, though, is using something like Apple's VoiceOver to see how a screenreader parses a page.
@carly Thank you very much!
@PhilthePill I work on a web app which has accessibility requirements, and I've learned that there really is no automated way to check if something is usable with screen readers, just like it can't be done for sighted users.
Can you tab through all the controls? Do they tab in the right order? Is the right text read? Can you get stuck in loops? Escape out of pop-up modals? Open menus? There's a lot to work out here.
@kepstin Thank you!
@PhilthePill you can always just try to use the site with a screen reader
I wonder if you can write selenium tests for that
